If there is one thing we can agree on collectively, it’s that Dragons are pretty frickin’ cool. Something about these fire-breathing, scaly, giant flying lizards has endured throughout our history, literature, and mythology. This week join Tuong and Daring Dragon Riders, Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster as they take to the skies and reign down a fiery Top 5 Dragons list!

Ground Rules

  • All manner of dragons count as a nomination (if it looks like a Dragon then we’ll take it as a nomination)
  • If it has “Dragon” in the name then we’ll count it, even though this list was created for the purpose of ranking fantasy creatures and not say, a certain band that has “Dragon” in it’s name.
  • Wyverns are essentially a bi-pedal dragon so they count.
  • Dragon qualities are typically that they need to fly, breathe fire, or be some sort of giant reptile but we are open to hearing arguments if it is brought up on the show.
  • That said, Bowser is NOT a Dragon! (he’s a Koopa Turtle. Duh.)
